Progressive, centralized cancer care under one roof is now a reality for patients in April Sampson Cancer Center ( Nebraska and beyond, with the opening of the April Sampson Cancer Center. This state-of-the-art facility is a collaboration between Bryan Health and Cancer Partners of Nebraska.

“The April Sampson Cancer Center is completely focused on and designed with patients’ needs at the forefront,” said Russ Gronewold, President and CEO, Bryan Health. “We worked with our cancer patients who’ve experienced care across the country, as well great physicians who gave their time to plan every component.”

In Nebraska, over 75,000 people require cancer care every year. The April Sampson Cancer Center offers advanced technology and treatment within a healing, comfortable environment. The facility provides cancer care under one roof and during one stop, improving upon a system that can involve multiple meetings with several specialists over the course of weeks.

The April Sampson Cancer Center is a 140,000 square foot building and the first structure on the new Bryan South Campus. The project and new campus location were unveiled in late 2020 after John Sampson, President of Sampson Construction, and his daughter, Cori Vokoun, Vice President of Sampson Construction, donated 29 acres of land for the facility. The comprehensive community cancer center is named after April Sampson, John’s wife and Cori’s mother, who lost her life in 2016 after bravely battling breast cancer for decades.

“Being involved with Bryan as a friend, contractor and board member, I’ve always been so impressed with how the organization has been relentless in getting what’s new and needed in Lincoln,” Vokoun said. “I feel so much joy when I go into this building. It’s so perfect for the site. It’s perfect for the work that’s going to happen here. I’m really excited about it and really proud of it.”
